ABOUT THIS SERIES
In a remote corner of Maine that locals call ‘The Forgotten County,’ the pandemic triggered isolation, economic struggles and a surge in suicides and overdoses. Hindered by a lack of mental health resources, communities and schools in Washington County banded together to find help for those with anxiety, depression and despair.
The Maine Monitor chronicled the heartbreaking losses in a county that sought solace and solutions to prevent more tragedies.
